Intigral, a leading provider of digital entertainment and sports in MENA, has announced a surge in viewership rates for Jawwy TV, its flagship OTT service during the holy month of Ramadan, further solidifying its position as one of the top regional Video on demand platforms utilizing world-class technologies.

During the first two weeks of Ramadan, Intigral highlighted a 46% increase in overall consumption compared to the four preceding weeks, driven by a combination of more viewers watching more. Linear TV was the major driving force in the upsurge with an increase of 70%.

Such results are a testament to the high quality and appeal of Jawwy TV’s library and in particular its original productions. The growth also highlights the success of Intigral’s strategy in providing a wide and diversified selection of quality content that caters to the different tastes and preferences of viewers in the region.
